Reykjavik Arts Festival: Every Body Electric
Sunday 19th June - 17:00
This highly charged dance piece by multi-award winning choreographer Doris Uhlich challenges our conventional ideas of the body‘s limitations and the energy that lives within us all. Combining explosive power with the gently poetic, a group of dancers with physical disabilities take the audience on a rhythmic and unpredictable journey into the essence of the human. Even the smallest movement can unleash an incredible amount of energy.
Every single body possesses its own unique, organic power, but in this piece the group also investigate the possibilities that come into play when the machine – be it an electric wheelchair, prosthetic limbs or a pair of crutches – become an extension of the body.
Doris Uhlich has created a large number of dance pieces. In recent years, she has collaborated with artists with physical disabilities and sought new ways to examine the movements and rhythms of the body.
The performance will be followed by an artist talk.
